Fulbright Teachers from South Korea Cha-Oak Kim and Jihyang Park traveled to Abilene, Texas to learn more about American students and how they are taught. To do that, they sat in on some classes, spoke with English as Second Language teachers, and gave presentations, but the kids also walked away with a new found perspective.

McMurry University’s School of Education Dean, Perry Haley Brown says, “I think one of the big things that our students walk away from this experience with is the fact that they learn first hand from teachers who are in the Korean culture and it gives them an added dimension that they wouldn’t have otherwise.”

The two teachers taught the 5th grade magnet school about Korean culture and learned more about life for American children in this report from KRBC News Reporter Marlisa Goldsmith.
